If you’re like me, you’ve got way too many apps installed on your Android-powered smartphone. Although it’s relatively easy to uninstall an app, it’s a bit more time consuming and has far more steps than should be necessary. Multiply that by a few dozen apps and it’s a pretty powerful disincentive for even the most organized among us!
Wouldn’t it be nice if you could bulk-remove all the apps that you never use anymore? That’s exactly what one developer thought, and he did something about it!
Silent App Uninstaller displays a list of apps that you have installed and lets you select which apps you want to backup, or which apps you want to remove. The removal process is super easy: check the box next to any apps you want to get rid of, tap the delete button, and let the app go to work.
Other apps exist that do the same thing, but most make you repeated hit the “confirm” button to tell the OS that you’re really serious about the removal of each app. That’s not the case with Silent App Uninstaller.
There is a drawback: this kind of power requires that you have rooted your phone and pass those permissions on to the app. In my opinion, it’s well worth rooting your phone just for this one app. Give it a try and let us know what you think in the comments below!
